Bright golden amber color. Musty, spicy aromas and flavors of marzipan pastry, spiced cherry, and sesame candy with a glycerous, tangy, medium body and a polished, complex, long finish imparting accents of chocolate orange peel and cherry, almond frosting, and pepper finish. A vibrant, flavorful amaretto.

Nut Liqueur

Spirits Glass Copita Amber.jpg
Serve in a Copita
Nut liqueurs have been flavored with the addition of hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and other nuts, usually along with other spices. Most are brown or amber in color; some are dry, some sweet. They are normally in the 18% to 25% alcohol range and are served neat as after-dinner liqueurs.
